Comprehensive employment contracts

We will draft you an employment contract to which either party can refer in the event of a dispute. We can advise you about terms appropriate to your particular circumstances including hours of work, pay structure, commission, bonus, over-time, holiday and sickness/maternity entitlement, job description, disciplinary and grievance procedures.
